Red Ribbon Run Set for October 17
The 26th Annual Red Ribbon Walk/Run, sponsored by the ADC, is set for Saturday, Oct. 17. Proceeds from the 5K run will allow scholarships to be awarded to graduating high school seniors, either from Jefferson County or the child of an ADC/CCS employee.
The entry fee for the Red Ribbon Run is $20 on the day of the race, but runners and walkers may pre-register for the event for $15. Pre-registration is now open and will continue through Friday, Oct. 9, and participants who sign up early are guaranteed to receive an official Red Ribbon T-shirt designed for this year’s race.
The Walk/Run will begin and end near the Wellness Center at Jefferson Regional Medical Center in Pine Bluff. A pistol shot start will be at 8 a.m., so racers are encouraged to arrive early. Awards will be given to the top three male and female finishers in 12 age divisions.
“I hope we have a large crowd for this family fun event! It is a great way to get in your exercise, or to support those who walk, jog, or run the event,” said ADC Director Wendy Kelley. “The Cummins Band will provide music, there will be free refreshments and door prizes! We have participants from all ages, and it really is a great event to benefit the community and support being drug-free!”
